? >> it was always a big nothing. there's no doubt about it. president obama has often been under criticism throughout his time in office for putting other issues before jobs and the exee, and in his first term it was obama care or cap and trade. now you hear about gun control and immigration, and creating a jobs council was a way to show that he was actively involved and compared approximat about t. >> do you think speaker boehner is wrong for coming out and criticizing the president for getting rid of the jobs council? is that a wrong move by the speaker of the house? >> i think he's correct. this never accomplished anything. he found this version of the, the president did. it met a few times in 2011, it never met at all in 2012, and it came up with recommendations like they should retrofit federal buildings to be more energy efficient. these are ideas that have been kicking around all over the place for years, so it just never came up with anything. the president didn't seem to invest any energy in it, and you know, the unemployment rate now is 7.9%, and it's that in part becau
